The Mac & cheese could have been a bit more cheesy. For the price of $6.99, it's actually $6.49 + $0.50 for breast portions, this is a pretty... More

This is a "downhome" style BBQ restaurant with incredibly delicious food! Don't let the neighborhood scare you, go on in and enjoy a meal you'll go back for again and again. One trip there is not enough and one thousand trips are not too many!!!!!!!!

I have been to Ms. Hyster's several times. It has all the elements that are needed in a barbecue restaurant: The ribs are very good. The chicken is moist and tender. The corn bread is some of the best I've ever eaten. This restaurant is clean, comfortable and definitely a great place to eat!!!
